    Truly Dreadful Film

    ... View More

    A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.

    Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.

    The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.

    I first saw Quincy just under ten years ago when they showed it on BBC1 in the afternoons. My first memory was of the cops fainting when Quincy shows them the autopsy in the credits. To be honest my favourite character altered between Sam and Astin but I like the cast as a whole, the Danny-Quincy banter (always trying to get that recipe) that dynamic storyline and what have you. I always enjoyed how Quince solved complex cases, although he dealt with the dead it was similar to House or CSI probably more CSI. One episode springs to mind when they search for a boy who's been hidden underground in the desert, they search everywhere and it's by finding a rare flower that starts them off and finding the boy. Quincy dealt with issues as relevant today as they were in the 70's and 80's. Our treatment of people of different race, sex and religion. Quincy was someone who genuinely cared and played excellently by Jack Klugman. Of course, let's not forget that 'funky' soundtrack!

    I miss those days when quincy was shown at TV here in Norway. The show was just pure magic. On one side Quincy was the relenteless detective/coroner who gave everything on the job. On the other side he also liked to shoot the breeze, drink, chase woman and have fun. That's what it is all about. The 70's were a dream considering TV series. Just think about cannon, Kojak and Quincy. JUST GREAT. Quincy is "old school, funny and a delight to watch. The style of the 70's seems so much more relaxed and cool compared to that of today.Recommended for everybody that's tired of all the crap shown to day. The 70's rule and Quincy is number one!

    Quincy was a great show with some very good and relevant episodes, covering environmental, epidemics, cot death, legal and medical loopholes. Jack Klugman was perfect for the role and the banter between his character, Asten and Monaghan was excellent.There is one puzzle though, what was the point of two of the characters, Danny and Sergeant Brill? The character of Danny did bring some humour to the show, but the part was mostly a couple of minutes at the end of the show. Not much of a part! Sergeant Brill's part was even more pointless than Danny's! Playing second fiddle to Monaghan, the part was virtually pointless, he rarely had anything significant to say, it was almost as if he was just given token lines to say.

    I have watched Quincy since I cant remember when, and have always loved it. I know some on here have slated the show, but to me its the precursor to all the new shows ie CSI. Quincy may have been the king of over exaggeration, and slightly obsessed with issues, but he cared! Klugman made the character his own, and I have to say that I love the guy to bits. Quincy almost feels as though he is one of the family, you have to love him. I admired his guts and determination to see things through, and his desire to right all the wrongs of the world dos not make him a bad person.Thanks to watching Quincy I developed a massive interest in the world of forensic medicine that still continues almost 25 years after seeing him for the first time. If the show inspired me to learn, then there most be others it influenced as well. I have now got an impressive library of all the shows, and I watch them time and again. Jack Klugman will always be Quincy to me, thats how convincing he was in the role. The sparring that went on between him and Aston always made me laugh as we all knew that Aston would bend in the end.Excellent show, one of the classics. Long live Quincy!!
